History of KFJC’s Remote Broadcasts
KFJC has been doing live remote broadcasts from outside of the San Francisco Bay Area for 24 years, with its first out-of-state broadcast from SXSW in Austin (1994). KFJC’s first international live remote was 22 years ago: from Brixton, England (1996). In 2000, KFJC volunteers traveled to Dunedin, New Zealand to broadcast 6 nights of live music from the Otago Festival of the Arts.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of KFJC’s first international remote with live video. In 2008, KFJC went to Tokyo, Japan and transmitted its first-ever live four-camera video stream.
